Technology Trends in Women's Health (Technical Insights)
Throughout the global population, women’s health issues are immense. These issues include bone-related disorders such as osteoporosis, which is the most widespread among disorders affecting women’s health; urinary tract infections (UTIs), anemia. Osteoporosis is a disease characterized by low bone mass and the structural deterioration of bone tissue, leading to bone fragility and an increased risk of hip, spine, and wrist fractures. Women are more prone to this disease, which can be prevented and treated. Women are at a greater risk of developing UTIs than men; UTIs are painful, and can be potentially dangerous if infections spread to the kidneys. Therefore preventing or quickly treating a UTI is of utmost importance. Women have greater requirements for minerals like iron. A deficiency in the diet can quickly lead to a debilitating anemic condition requiring expensive medical intervention. Women’s health is another prominent medical imaging area where increasing number of participants are venturing into with the spate of improvements evidenced over the last several years. Breast imaging has seen a lot of increased interest in the past year. The most common breast imaging procedures are X-ray mammography, breast ultrasound, breast MRI (magnetic resonance imaging), and molecular breast imaging (MBI). These technologies are also associated with the expansion of 3D mammography, also known as digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT). Until recently, there was not much that could be done for women with dense breasts, but advances in breast MRI, automated breast ultrasound (ABUS) and tomosynthesis now offer options to better screen these patients. Of these, tomosynthesis will likely become the primary modality, since it is substantially similar to current mammography workflows. It also offers the ability to view slices of the breast to better differentiate actual lesions from areas of overlapping dense tissue. Imaging centers across the country are leveraging their new tomosynthesis machines in public ad campaigns to attract new patients. This research service is a study on the technology trends in the arena of Women’s Health. For the scope of the study, women health has been categories into two categories namely, women health nutrients and women health imaging. The research discusses the government initiatives taken to help research and development and technologies advance in the field of women health. This research service also covers the following key sections in women’s health nutrients and women’s health imaging:
Technology capability and value chain

About this report
In almost all parts of the world, women live longer than men. The exact cause behind the differential between male and female life expectancy is uncertain, but it appears to be partly explained by biological advantages and partly by environmental and behavioral factors. However, as women outlive men, they are more prone to suffering from ill health and other age related diseases. It has been observed that women healthcare especially in less-developed settings remain largely confined to reproductive matters, particularly maternal health. However, the population is also prone to suffering from other diseases such as osteoporosis, which is the most widespread among disorders affecting women’s health; urinary tract infections (UTIs), anemia, etc.
This research service is therefore a study on the technology trends in the arena of Women’s Health. For the scope of the study, women health has been categories into two categories namely, women health nutrients and women health imaging.
